    Hi there!!! I just got my 19" Rim. I am deciding between 225 or 235. Does anyone have any recomendation? I am currently run 225/45/17 on STOCK RIM. I feel pretty much the same with stock tire. However, my MPG dropped from 44 to 40~41. If anyone runs 235 please post your opinion, handling, and...

    I haven't noticed it until just recently. When I get out or in my car and it moves just a little there is a rubbing sound coming from the front end. Sounds like it may be strictly from the passenger front tire. If I stand outside my car and rock it a little it makes the noise. Going to take...

    Ok, I'm trying to buy new tires and I'm really interested in the turanza serenity plus. For sone reason Bridgestone site doesnt list that tire for the ct but it lists it for the prius! Isn't both vehicles sharing the same wheels and tire types?

    Finding the right tire to fit on a vehicle is not easy. If you want proof of the difficulty, just look at the caravan of tire trucks that follow rally teams around the world. There are different profile tires, there are different rubber compounds and there are tire tread patterns for all...

    A few days ago I had my OEM tires replaced. The gentleman running the shop replaced my metal valve covers with silver plastic covers. He said that the metal covers can get corroded to the valve stem and sometime requires a wrench to remove. If the cover is too tight or stuck you can run the...

    Have a 2012 F-Sport SE with oem Michelin Primacy MXM4. 20,000 miles on tires and car. The tires have gotten really noisy and the front tires are cupped on the inside edge. Sounds like a truck. The tires have been rotated every 5000 miles and air has been kept at recommended pressures...

    How wide can I go with stock rims? Will going to a wider tire impact the MPG?

    Hey guys -- I just had my tires/rims switched over to snows for the first time. I was expecting my warning light to show immediately, but it hasn't. Any ideas why? I had aftermarket steelies put on.

    Switched my "3 season" 215/45/17 stock Michelin Primacy's over to 205/55/16 Michelin X-ice 3's on steel rims. No problem with fit and function on the dry run (no ice/snow, yet). If I didn't know better I wouldn't be able to tell if they were snow tires or not based on the overall ride. In fact...

    Hi guys, I want to mute the TPMS light when I have winters on. I've seen various write ups for the Yaris, Rav4, etc. I have the service manual but for the life of me can't find the wiring diagram for the TPMS ECU. Anyone have it? Or can tell me which part of the service manual to look in...

    Just thinking ahead to my first winter with the CT200, and found a relatively inexpensive Nitto NT-SN2 that gets many excellent reviews. However, it only seems to be available on just one web site (TireBuyer.com), and it's not listed on the Nitto tire site. I spoke to a Nitto rep inquiring why...

    I never am a fan of factory tires and the ones that came on this car is especially noisy. Well today my wife got a flat tire so we're going to see if we need new tires. Has anyone tried other brands or specific tires such as the Dunlop Star Specs?

    Had my 8K service last Satuday, Dealer set the tire pressure to 32PSI. Tonight temperature dropped down to 5 degrees and the tire pressure warning light lighted on. Should I increase the PSI? And ever since the temperature dropped down to below 18 degrees couple weeks ago, the fuel consumption...

    It is now that time of the year when I have to think seriously about buying snow tires for my CT. My Premium CT has the 17" wheels, and is currently equipped with 215/45R17 Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires. The list price for the equivalent Michilin Primacy Alpin snow tires is $238 per tire. That...
